Hi All – Firstly, we want to express our deepest condolences to Susanne and the family of Peter Eichhorn, of P.Trash Records who recently passed.

RIP to a good friend and true supporter of music in general.

Happy end of 2016. We had a hell of a year with this here record above. The response was truly insane – thanks to all the places and friends who put us on their “best of” lists (see below for a sample). But most importantly, a huge thanks to everyone who emailed me, tweeted me or told me in person how important this record was to them. We’ve never had so many peers reach out to us like that with compliments. Sometimes it’s hard to keep going, since we’re not a fresh new band anymore, so when we say it means a lot, it truly does. So, thank you. We had a blast on the road at SXSW, in Canada and on our east coast USA tour with Sonic Aves. Things will slow down a little for a while with a baby on the way, but we ain’t ever quittin’. Possibly hitting Japan and Spain again next year, so we’ll keep you all posted.
Here’s a selection of joints who put us on their best of lists.
Austin Town Hall:
Circuit Sweet UK:
Faster & Louder:
Night Birds/Fat Wreck (hon mention):
Head & Banger, Signal to Noise NJ, Fridays of our Lives etc…
Ottawa Show Box:
We had the best time on our US tour with Sonic Avenues down the East Coast. We’ll be back! Thankfully we finally found time to play far East Canada as well. Thanks to everyone who came out or helped out. Here’s a picture from our New York City show at The Cake Shop (photo by Nick Jagger).
Hey Everyone – very sorry to note that we’re unable to play FEST in Gainesville this year. We’ll be back, though!
New Show Announcement – w/ PUP @ Zaphods in Ottawa on December 9/16. Already sold out!
“Graceland” has been steady on the College charts in Canada, including #1 in Ottawa and #44 Nationally! Thanks for all the great reviews. We really think it’s our best record, too. Don’t forget to grab the super-limited, mailorder only version of our LP here (but there’s plenty of standard black vinyl copies at a store new you):
